Travel & Accommodation[edit]

If you plan to move around Barcelona with public transportation (train, bus, metro), we strongly recommend you to purchase a 10-ride intermodal ticket (less than 10 EUR).

The cheaper option for arriving Sant Andreu neighbourhood (around 1 hour) from the airport:

Keep an eye and be always close to your belongings during your trip, especially at stations and touristic hotspots. You must not be afraid about your physical integrity, but you must be concerned about any pickpocketing attempt. More details...
